Flipp has partnered with non-profits in the US and Canada to provide fifteen teachers with $1,000 to buy back-to-school supplies for their classes.

Flipp, which provides customers with access to digital coupons, has partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org in the US and My Class Needs in Canada. According to AdoptAClassroom.org, one in five teachers spend $1,000 or more of their own personal income on school supplies for their classroom.

“It’s common knowledge that the back-to-school season can be a stressful and expensive time for parents looking to find all of the items their kids need while staying on budget,” said Charmaine D’Silva, VP of Marketing Communications at Flipp. “However, what many people don’t realize is that this time of year can be equally stressful for teachers who are tasked with setting up safe and stocked classrooms for their incoming students – often on their own dime. Flipp wants to help out.”
